I Heart Weekends.

11 Jul

You guys, I LOVED hearing what brand/type of protein powder y’all are using! I trust you and your protein powder tastes, so I’ll definitely check out the ones you guys like – thanks so much! 😀

So it’s Sunday night, and I’m currently lounging on the couch while Mexican Lasagna bakes/gets all cheesy gooey in the oven. Don’t worry, my cyberspace friends…I wouldn’t dare keep the recipe from you! I’ve tried that once before with the PB M&M’s Cookie Bars and you just wouldn’t let me off the hook. 😉

Ok, so onto the point of this post: I heart weekends. I’m just sayin’…

Friday was celebrated with wine – although I’m partial to celebrating every day with wine!

Oh, Malbec...I love you so.

I also convinced the husband to watch “17 Again” with me – ya know, that teeny-bopper film featuring Zac Efron and Matthew Perry?! Ha! We had it OnDemand, so it was free…and I just felt like watching a mindless movie. Maybe it was the wine now that I think about it…

We slept in on Saturday, and the husband whipped up some french toast. Yummy!

Perfect Saturday Morning.

Don’t worry. This picture was taken before I slathered it in butter and maple syrup. The only true way to eat french toast!

The rest of the day was spent reading, taking naps and getting my butt kicked in Yahtzee. Ya win some, ya lose some. 🙂

Church was so refreshing this morning. The sermon was about how words are powerful, and once they are said, that can’t be taken back. Sure, you can apologize and ask for forgiveness. But mean words can sting and leave a person hurt and vulnerable. Patience is key in a frustrating situation. Indeed.

We also went to the gym this afternoon, followed by some time at the pool. Seriously, I heart weekends.

Well, we’re going to enjoy the Mexican Lasagna now! Hope you’ve all had a terrific weekend.

How did you spend your weekend?! Did you take it easy, since last weekend was a holiday filled with parties, fireworks, picnics friends, family, etc.?


One Indulgent Weekend.

6 Jul

It’s Tuesday already…aren’t three-day weekends just fabulous?!

I had the most glorious [and indulgent] holiday weekend filled with friends, cupcakes, beer, sangria, jelly beans, fireworks, pool time and even a little Body Pump. 😉

Let’s go through day-by-day, shall we?


Friday was absolutely relaxing. Once the husband got home from work, we took some clothes to the dry cleaners…and there just happened to be a local bakery nearby. We stopped in, and it was the cutest thing….definitely owned by older women. We got two cupcakes, and they were only $.85 each! I love locally owned stores!

Chocolate for him, vanilla for her.

We hit the pool for a bit and then headed home to make dinner. We whipped up some pizza [artichoke/black olive…mmm!] and drank beer. ‘Twas a perfect Friday night!

Amstel Light [oh yes, I did!]


The husband and I both woke up early to get a workout in. I headed to the gym for Body Pump and some cardio, and he went on a bike ride. Motivation=win!

After I got home from the gym, I made some Peanut Butter M&M Cookie Bars for a church BBQ and a friend’s party that were going to take place on Sunday.

EDIT: Recipe is now available!

Heaven on Earth.

We headed to downtown D.C. on Saturday for a get-together on the rooftop of a great apartment building. It had a stunning view of the The Monument, as well as The Capitol. So many people were from Nebraska [our home!], and we enjoyed catching up with them! It was here that I enjoyed some strong sangria, white chocolate bark and caramel/chocolate pretzels. I loved every minute.


We got groceries Sunday morning, as always. We made it back home just in time to watch the Wimbledon finals. Unfortunately, we missed [ok, skipped!] church because we wanted to see Nadal win! We did make it to the church BBQ though, so no worries!

Later that night, we headed back downtown to meet friends. We actually went to the same apartment building and enjoyed dinner with two other couples. Both of the girls were in my sorority during college – it was so nice to spend the 4th with them! This is where I ate my weight in jelly beans. 😉

We were able to watch the fireworks on the rooftop. Absolutely spectacular. It was so fun to be in our nation’s capital on America’s birthday! I think everyone should experience it at some point!


We slept in [until 9!] yesterday, and it felt great! We had to run some errands, so it wasn’t anything too exciting but still very relaxing. I ended up having an upset stomach yesterday, so I did spend the majority of my night resting on the couch. Not a fun way to end the weekend, but I’m glad it was then and not during the fun parties!

How was your weekend? What did you do?! I always love hearing about the fun things people do on holidays!

Bloggies, I’m alive. Don’t fret! 🙂

I was seriously lacking in the blog department this past weekend – I know. However, I had the most splendid weekend that was spent with the husband and fabulous friends from back home (Nebraska). I will give you a full recap tomorrow.

Until then, I hope you enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend!
